Biofilm Formation by and Thermal Niche and Virulence Characteristics of Escherichia spp.

Ingle, Danielle; Clermont, Olivier; Skurnik, David; Denamur, Erick; Walk, Seth T.; Gordon, David


In order to better understand the ecological and virulence characteristics of the various clades of Escherichia, in vitro and in vivo experiments were undertaken. Members of the recently described cryptic clades of Escherichia (clades III, IV, and V) were found to have an enhanced ability to form biofilms compared to strains of Escherichia coli, E. fergusonii, or E. albertii. Members of the cryptic clades were also able to replicate at a lower temperature (5°C versus 11°C) than strains of the...[Show more]
